Stainless Steel Wallet

Here’s another interesting product from Hammacher Schelmmer. It’s a wallet that is made of woven stainless steel threads. Besides resisting stains and stretching, it also resists radio-frequency hacking of newer credit cards.

  2. The biggest knock on this wallet is that it is not very durable and won’t stretch to accommodate a lot of cards. They actually have a redesign where the fold is not metal. Sharp looking wallet though.

    I am a wallet pack-rat, so it won’t work for me, sadly.

  3. Not durable? Please explain what you mean here, as to my knowledge steel is very durable, even when woven in a fibrous form

  4. Like Bryan has said, it is not very durable.

    I used to own a stainless steel wallet because of its novelty but it did break after just ~3 months of use to me. The folding part and one of the corners were actually tearing apart. I also had some trouble putting some cards in it. But I can’t recall if it’s the same brand…

    While it may not have stains, it shown quite a lot of “metal wrinkles” after some use (and with the shadow/lighting and its greyi-sh colour — it just looked like stains to me).

    In the end I went back to leather wallet but I do miss the thinness of it.

  5. dirfwear makes wallets using the faraday’s cage concept, so has RF blocking layer sewn in but is otherwise a regular leather type wallet. Quite a bit simpler than having the whole wallet made of medal.

    Though those aluminum card cases are pretty good too and help prevent card bending over time.

  6. Do anyone know is it possible to buy gary scott titanium wallet from anywere? I would die for that. Even used one would do.
